Our School

There is always a lot going on at our wonderful Mill Park Elementary school. Below you’ll see some of our local heroes. Please read below to see current events and basic information about the Mill Park PANTHERS. 

Multicultural Dessert Night

Thank you for sharing your culture with others. Mill Park families know how to bake and cook! We had Somali, Burmese, Mexican, Karen, Thai, Russian, Ukrainian, American and several other delicious desserts. Kudos to our Family Club who made this a successful event. 

Vision Testing 

We have a new partnership with Vision to Learn. All the students who did not pass their eye exams in the Fall will receive a new pair of glasses in 2024. We had our Vision Van here to test students, and students were able to pick out their own lenses. 

New Safety Protocols

District-Wide, we now use the Safety Protocols from the I Love you Guys Foundation. Local police enforcement are trained to use the same words we use to communicate clear and simple safety directions to kids and staff: hold, secure, lockdown, evacuation and shelter. All kids have been trained, and we’ve practiced a “Hold” and “Secure” drill already. Please see our protocols below: 

Paw Tickets

We use Paw Tickets to reward students for Safe, Kind and Responsible behavior. Teachers have class Paw Tickety drawings each Friday, and we have monthly paw ticket drawings at our assemblies. Students can also decide to save paw tickets and earn the following:

10 Paw Tickets – A photo on the wall or a star sticker on your photo

200 Paw Tickets – A Mill Park T- Shirt

100 Paw Tickets – Fancy Lunch with three friends. See below to see an official Fancy Lunch.

General Info

Which door do I drop off my child at? Where do I pick them up?

The FRONT DOOR is only for bus riders to enter and exit. The front bus loop is NOT a car drop off area. DO NOT drive into the Bus Loop to drop your child off at the front door. This creates traffic issues for our buses and safety issues for our students. Additionally, it is unlawful to park in the designated handicap parking spots to drop off your child. We have students that need access to these permit only spaces. These spots need to remain open for our families and community members with legal handicap permits. 

The CAR DOOR is located on the North side of our school. If you drop off your child by car, you can park or let them out in the Mill Park Baptist Church Parking lot off Market Street, North of our school and walk up the path to the school. This is the same door they will exit from to go home by car at the end of the school day.

The WALKER DOOR is located on the East side of our school, next to the playground. If you walk to school, we ask that students enter and exit through this door. 

We have THREE entrances. Please use your correct door to prevent traffic issues. 

Thank you for your cooperation in helping to meet the needs of our Mill Park community during drop off and pick up!

Bus Info

Please visit the David Douglas Website by clicking HERE to get your student’s bus information. You’ll need your students 6-digit student ID number for their username (the one they log into their computers with) and their password is their date of birth. 

As always, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions. We’ll see you soon!
